You should have really messed with her and said, I’m not pregnant. THEN see who feels like an a$$.

Appropriate response: Barfing on her and telling her it’s morning sickness.

Not okay at all. When I got pregnant all 3 times by my 4th month I looked like I was 6 months and I hated it but if someone was rude about it believe me I made sure they got what they deserved back. People are so damn ignorant and stupid at times. Who gives a shit if you are wide or big, or round while pregnant it wasnt her damn business to mouth at all. Dont sweat it and good luck on your pregnancy!!

How rude! (Cue Stephanie Tanner)

I don’t know what is up with people… I’ve had the same kind of day! I’m a therapist at a weight management center, so maybe it’s natural for my cleints to be a little size/weight focused, but HELLO, why is a woman being pregnant license to say anything that comes to mind?!? I think because they all still weigh more than me they don’t realize it’s upsetting! I had three clients this morning go on and ON about how big I am getting. One said, “Wow, I told you last week that you’d really popped and were looking big, but man, this week you are HUGE.” Gee thanks! Another client said, “When are you due again?” I said, “End of Nov/early Dec,” and she responded, “Are you SURE you’re not having twins… you are REALLY big”! Ugh!!!!!!!!! Way to make a girl feel like a whale!!!

I never got this! I just want to one day turn around and comment on a non-pregnanat person’s weight! I have had so many people comment on my weight and even people I hardly know ask my weight and how much I’ve gained. If you wouldn’t say it to a non-pregnant lady do not say it to a pregnant lady!

ugh!!! so rude!!! I was young when I had my son. I was 20 when I was pregnant. So I was still going to college thru my pregnancy. I was off from basically mid november thru january. When I came back I was 6 months pregnant as opposed to only 4 ish. I had grown quite a bit in that time and a teacher at my school said to me “wow you really have gotten big!” and then of course she seen the look of hurt on my face and was like “i mean your baby belly! its just so out there now!”….. thanks lady. here I was thinking I had a cute little round belly and i find out i have a huge “way out there” belly. I still had 3 months to go. I cried on the way home to Fiance. People really know no boundaries sometimes i swear.

Over the weekend I was at a J.Crew outlet and I reallyed wanted this sweater so when I asked if they had a Medium or Large the woman told me no. Well I tried on the Small anyway, knowing it was going to be tight but I just wanted to see how bad it was. So I have the Small on and it’s a little tight, not like a stuffed sausage, but tight and the sales woman walks past me and says, “Oh, is that the Large?” and I was like, “Umm…no. It’s the Small.” I promptly put down the other clothes in my hand I was going to get and walked out. You never over guess a size, but especially with a hormonal pregnant lady!!!

I later composed myself and thought, “Maybe she just thought the small actually fit me well enough that it must be the large.” Either way, I was miffed…

I really hate stuff like that. People feel totally free saying anything and everything to a pregnant woman. The other day, an older coworker of mine told me I was really “blooming” – and she finished by saying, “but you look good”  Um, thanks?  Please don’t talk to me about weight gain and how much you gained and ask me how much I’ve gained already! It’s really none of your business. Maybe next time I should just go back and ask her how much she currently weighs.  😉
